Everything and a Happy Ending is a memoir that recounts 3 interconnected relationships & love stories. It shares Tia’s full circle journey to learn how to really trust, how to “thine own self be true” and then the real & true love it circled her ‘round back to. It’s a story about how the power of love & a journey to intimacy helped flip learned pessimism, reacting in reflex and running from fear into choosing optimism, trusting intuition and rising above the fear.

“it deeply explores the inter-connectedness of human relationships…this will be like no other memoir you have read”
“if personal growth is on your agenda Tia Shurina’s memoir comes highly recommended”
“the unifying factors in Shurina’s memoir are that it is wide ranging and logical, relationship driven, & indicative of the backward forward flows of life itself.”
“what we most identified with is the author’s struggle to find out who she really is, how to love another yet continue to love yourself without losing yourself to another”
“in order for a memoir to be interesting, the protagonist has to grow and change. Shurina has done this and her telling of the journey is heartfelt and inspiring…there is bravery in mining personal growth the way it is done in this book…the “characters” are treated with respect”
“Tia has that uncanny capability to seize your attention and make you feel as though you’re her closest friend and that rare ability true artists share…she pulls on your heartstrings until you feel her thoughts….Her subtle yet bold processing of transpersonal growth become yours, like getting lost in a great movie and projecting oneself onto the lead, the heroine.”
“Tia's book, her life, and her message is captivating. What I absolutely loved about this book is the naked honesty and vulnerability on every page. It takes tremendous courage to share one's story and life with such openness.. Tia opens herself up in this book and shares her truth which will teach any reader lessons on struggle and courage as well as hard times and happiness. This is a book, a life, that we can all learn from."
“Tia talks WITH you, not AT you.”
